Factors of the Most Energy Efficient Air Conditioners
The best air conditioners to get for energy efficiency will have a high energy star rating. Of course, the more stars the unit has, the better the rating, and the more money that will eventually be saved. Selecting the unit that consumes the least amount of energy is going to be the way to go.
A final thing that will want to be considered when looking for the most energy efficient air conditioner is the control system. Choose a unit that automatically turns the unit off when the temperature in the space has reached the desired temperature level. A thermostat that has a timer is ideally the best suited for energy savings.
Ducted Reverse Cycle Air Conditioners
When consumers want to really get as efficient as they can with energy consuming units, they should consider ducted reverse cycle air conditioners. The reverse cycle principle works by understanding how air conditioning works, in the first place. A fan pulls the heat in the home over coolant in the unit. The air is cooled as the unit absorbs the heat, and the air goes back into the home. With the reverse cycle principle, the process is reversed. In this way, the unit can be used to both heat and cool the home. This is a money saver, as well as being energy efficient.
The Actron Air ESP Plus
By far, the system that stands out as the top-of-the-line in energy efficient air conditioners is the Actron Air ESP Plus. This Australian system will save up to 60 percent on operational cost when compared with other units. The system is fully integrated, with a high tech zoning system that distributes air to the least zone space. As a 2008 winner of a COOLWorld Industry Award, the Actron Air ESP Plus is easily the better choice for residential and commercial applications.

Other Ways to Save Energy in Your Home
As well as heating and cooling, here some easy things you can do to improve the energy efficiency of your home.
Reduce Light Usage and Use LED Bulbs
Energy consumption can be reduced by ensuring you are using energy efficient LED bulbs. Ensuring that the lights in your home are turned off when not in use is another important contributing factor to reducing energy consumption.
Ensure Your Fridge Seals Correctly
Check that your fridge and freezer close completely. If there is a slight gap in the seal of your fridge or freezer it will have to consume a lot more energy in order to stay at the set temperature. If there is a gap consider getting it resealed.
Check the Doors and Windows
Check around the doors and windows for drafts and seal the areas where there are leaks. Use curtains or blinds to further seal the windows. Close the curtains or blinds at night and during the day when it gets hot. Ensuring doors and windows are properly sealed will also help to improve the efficiency of your heating and cooling system.
